Game opener hits 87 as team set to defeat Capitals
Delhi Capitals were in disarray ahead of their game against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday with a Covid outbreak in their side. Team management member James Hopes said in an interview with broadcasters that they didn’t even have a team meeting before the game, and it showed.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Rishabh Pant boys lacked the planning and execution to deal with the trickery of CSK, who are hoping for a miracle to make the Playoffs. Although CSK didn’t put a foot wrong, DC was absolutely horrible with both bat and ball and after the 91-point loss they will need to win the last three games to stay in the hunt.
The fact that their net run rate has also been hit hard will make things even more difficult going forward. The win may not ultimately make a difference to CSK’s fortunes this season, but it did provide them with building blocks for the future.

As for the CSK, from Matthew Hayden to Faf du Plessis, they have always had the good fortune of having high-quality foreign openers who have single-handedly won their matches.
Sunday, they unearthed their new star opener abroad who will serve them for a long time. Devon Conway was not the most wanted opener at auction. But following contributions from coach Stephen Fleming, CSK opted for the Kiwi to replace Faf, who was snapped up by RCB. Conway had an insipid start to his career at CSK, then left the camp to get married, and since his return to the fold he has been in very good contact.
After some impressive performances in the last two games, Conway showed his full range against the Delhi Capitals on Sunday. It was Conway’s 87 from 49 that helped CSK go 208-6 after being put on the line by Rishabh Pant.

In a 110 opening partnership with Ruturaj Gaikwad (41) from 11 overs, Conway threatened to pull the game for the Capitals. While Ruturaj looked solid at one end, it was Conway who took it upon himself to step on the gas.
To make a 208 game, the Capitals needed a start similar to CSK’s. But David Warner & Co. weren’t ready to give themselves the time to attack CSK’s bowling, which wasn’t the best at the end of the set. The quick wickets fell into the top 10 and the chase was gone in no time.
